FilmSlam reached the half way point for 2007 last Sunday with its best attended program yet. This monthly exhibition of local filmmakers’ work has settled in comfortably in its new home at Enzian at 1 PM on the second Sunday of every month, and all of the audience choice winners for January through November can look forward to participating in the 16th annual Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase on December 8 & 9.
This month’s 1st Place Award went to THAT’S THE NAME OF THAT TUNE by Robert and James Dastoli, a film about an aging clarinetist and regaining one’s faith in the world. Kudos also go out to Jonathan Vazquez’ BENEATH THE SURFACE, about the journey of a dollar bill, and Michael Capitelli’s PLAYING WITH MYSELF, an inside look at the bizarre life of a professional solitaire player. These films got 2nd and 3rd place honors, so congratulations to all the filmmakers. Keep those Florida projects comin’ and don’t forget to join us for FilmSlam # 7 on July 8.
